Trinamool Congress (TMC) supremo, Mamata Banerjee has announced that her party will be holding protests in December against CAB and NRC. In a tweet by the official Twitter handle of TMC, it was announced that protest marches will be held on December 16th and 17th.

As evident from the tweets, Mamata Banerjee is set to ‘walk in the rally’ to protest against the passage of Citizenship Amendment Bill in both houses of the parliament.

In no uncertain terms, Mamata Banerjee, the TMC supremo has announced that she will not allow the implementation of Citizenship Amendment Bill (CAB) and Registry for Citizens (NRC) in West Bengal.

The fear-mongering by Mamata Banerjee and TMC has come at a time when West Bengal has seen mobs turn violent protesting CAB right after the Friday prayers at Mosques.

The mobs were seen pelting stones on Ambulances and running trains in West Bengal. A cop was also injured in violent protests.
